RISING STAR SERIES
We are delighted that Ethan Loch has agreed to perform for us following the cancellation, due to illness, of his 2023 concert for the Festival. Blind since birth, Ethan was the winner of the piano final of the BBC Young Musician competition, aged 17.
In the concerto final, he played Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2 with Mark Wigglesworth and the BBC Philharmonic. His technical mastery and innate musicianship belies his age.
Ethan Loch is set for a career of inspirational music making. Currently a student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Ethan won the Scottish International Youth Piano Competition (2019), the James Waterhouse Loretto Piano Competition “Advanced” class (2017) and the Premio Assoluto prize at the 15th International ‘Giuseppe Sciacca’ awards (2016). His first CD ‘Mysterious Pathways Volume One’ was featured on Classic FM.
Ethan will include music by Haydn, Mozart, Chopin and Liszt in addition to his own compositions. Further details are available on our website. Ethan is grateful to the Young Classical Artists Trust for their generous support in the aftercare scheme for BBC Young Musician finalists.
This concert has been kindly sponsored by Judith & Adrian Dunn.
